After having arranged to meet someone (platonic or romantic) I generally turn up alone, or if I have reservations I may have a friend politely bid their farewells when they are comfortable the person I am meeting is not a criminal. He had a quick wit and a gorgeous smile, I would have liked to have spent some time getting to know him without a chaperone.
In my opinion, if they had to go out and attract a woman entirely on their own (and assuming she had unfettered free will and choice in the matter), they would be less likely to indulge in these behaviours. In years past I have come to India for work, and in my current stay in Delhi I am living with family and am privy to another side of India.
Whilst the professional men that I have met don’t have the more distasteful personal habits, I do still find them very difficult to understand.
Whilst she was lovely and friendly, her presence changed our plans and the dynamic of our meeting.
I have never encountered this before when meeting Western men or women for that matter. It all seemed strange, and quite honestly a little disappointing.
Even if I try and rationalise the behaviour, after all there is a dire lack of sanitation facilities in India hence the need for public urination, looking through my western eyes I found my attraction to men waning.
